Thanks for the reply! There are 5 horses in total. They have all been together since May 2011. 13 yo gelding (boss), 11 yo mare (boss mare), 10 yo mare (middle of the pack), 2.5 yo mare (bottom of the pack), and the 1.5 yo gelding. With the footing as bad as it has been this winter here, they are kept in about 3 acres around the barn. In the spring, summer, fall, they are turned out on 10 acres (and he still does it). At night, the 2 young ones are stalled. He exhibits the same behavior to all of them and gets essentially the same response from all of them. (bunny hops, squeals from the mares, occasional lunge/bite, but never anything hard).
